Jubilant McComb officials announced Wednesday that the city received a $100,000 Entergy grant to revitalize the area around the depot and breathe life into a place the mayor said “once was the very heart of the city.”

    What a wast of money. But, hey, it is more free money for Rawlings and company that did not come out of my pocket.
